'Where I'm Meant To Be' features contributions from Kojey Radical, Emeli Sandé and more
British jazz group Ezra Collective have a new album on the way.
Spanning 14 tracks, 'Where I'm Meant To Be' features contributions from Kojey Radical, Emeli Sandé, Nao and Sampa The Great, the latter of whom appears on lead track 'Life Goes On', which opens the album.
In a statement about the track, the band said: "London meets Lusaka. Moments of joy, moments of struggle, but united in a spirit that we must carry on. Life must go on. We write our music with a consistent will to push the boundaries of what we can mix jazz with.
"This incorporates the energies of southern African vibes, mixed with our own style of London jazz. And no better person to voice this beauty than the queen, Sampa the Great."

'Where I'm Meant To Be', which will be released on 4th November, follows on from Ezra Collective's 2019 debut album 'You Can't Steal My Joy'.
Earlier this month, album guest Sampa The Great released the track 'Bona', which features on her forthcoming album, 'As Above, So Below'.
